  1. Past hour
  2. 1) You missed the "and David" part I'm guessing. He has every bit of the access I do, you just don't hear from him much. 2) The existing board votes you into a reserve board member slot, if a board member leaves or resigns, we pull one of those up to the Board. This is generally a group of current and former developers. 3) There is no hostile takeover, there is only Zuul. 4) The board will not entertain a transfer of any property or money in any way other than direct charity donations from the player base. If that ever becomes insufficient we shut the servers down. The reason for this is part of the tax exemption agreement we have stipulates that under no circumstance can donations be rewarded by any sort of prize or improvement. If we paid taxes it would be a possibly different story to an extent. 5) That's probably a question for a lawyer, but what do you mean by "making content" for the game? If you want to do that just work on the things I've told you would help and come back to me and maybe we give it a try. I am sorry you take a negative view or think you see no progress, what i've been doing for the past six months along with several of our other developers is improving tool sets so we can start to roll out content more efficiently. This seemed like a better use of time than a monthly patch we struggled to meet again and again. What progress is it that you want to see? GMs have not indicated a need for more GMs. Woodstock would let me know as necessary for that. With regard to observation, I don't think you have a whole view of what you think you have a whole view of. We take a fair amount of donations to keep the servers up and keep the game going, it's at least a few thousand a year and it reflects on this organizations tax report, which I still have to do and report every cent that comes in. It's a little awkward to explain how a tax-exempt company appears to be profiting, it's one thing to build up a balance if we are going to make a known and planned purchase but growing it indefinitely would be something that would draw inspection. This is generally scrutinized pretty heavily and our purpose is to keep the game alive as indefinitely as possible while growing it as we can. What exactly is it you're hoping to accomplish? We'd like to see some more donations too but we can't accept them conditionally which most crowdfunding requires. This is the problem. The existing team can expand the game content, and any willing to learn, use our tools and communicate/write effectively are more than welcome to join us to help generate new missions and stories and other interactions for people to enjoy. I think like some others have suggested that if you do that, you are doing it of your own accord and you are risking the wrath of Electronic Arts as has been suggested. They are known to jealously protect their content. For the most part, I think they have ignored us precisely because we don't attempt to make any more than necessary to keep the game server running for everyone. As someone noted, if they see a profit on their idea/intellectual property they're going to take a more keen interest and it leads to being shut down which no one wants.

  13. 1. No one is discussing startign a new Earth and Beyond under a different entity. 2. NPO can receive service, aid and equipment on loan for free from outside contributors. 3. Don't put too much into what the DEV say , there history and past action contradict a lot o there own rules and own words. Why I suggest ceating many different entity to not be tied with those rules and contract. EA does a lot of stupid things, that have nothing to do with cost or profit 1. Are you a lawyer ? 2. Professional copyright and game industry Lawyer tell me I can 3. it,s a common pratice these days to separate promotion and marketing from content even between ownership and creation even patent are in other corporation/llc Promotion and marketing and outside patching is intellectual property theft ? Just to be clear NO and not at all Do you know how many Windows , Apple, Linux , OUTSIDE service and paching company there is worldwide ? Your non argument is based of some Asian racism the biggest intellectual property thieve are in the USofA followed by russia. You see my Name on that Cntract ? Is your's on it ? Are you on the emu board ? 1. Show US a copy of that contract 2. Scan it and Show me a outside developper section 3. Scan it and Show me a Crowdfunding section ( since crowdfunding is newer than that contract ) BTW don't ever call me or suggest thievery on my part. What I suggest as been done / allowed By EA , recently Also contract can be renegotiated and what is not or people not in that contract by signature are not bound by it Laywer seem to think no one will pay millions to create a non profit to contribute to a non profit movie /game / edifice and that crowdfunding cannot raise 250 million or more. Since when is EA a tax collector in any country ?
  14. How can 7 new sector had been made by EA time machine ? You do know that what EA did is on display on some site and if you take your time studying it one can tell every change made to every sector specifically. The hidden race newbie sector where incomplete and there ship not properly working The hidden ship never where included in the selection process ... The Dev team did a fantastic job with what they got whcih was basically nothing , it was not a turn key solution that they just had to switch back on, they had to rebuild almoste entirely everything Why don't you go take a class in Computer hsitory and see that a lot of development was made by people improving on closed technology but not copying it. 250 million reason Tied to demand that are now making development and game continuity almost impossible Kyp fatigue and unwillingness to go back to how it started and evolved because it bring in too much content that is not pro level and since he his unpaid and can't pay full timer and has a more demanding outside life is unable to give it the time it is needed as he once did. 1. As an EA minority shareholders I don't really have to entertain your personnal feelings. Do I ? 2. My goal si to Free Kyp from is contract shackles and legal slavery by legal means. 3 I want to give him and the Earth and Beyon project more funds , more develloper , more freedom so that more player can enjoy the game and that the content and game play reflect what the game could truly be 34 127 is the number of accounts that can play the game and is registered , the game as at most 200 player on it these days.
  15. My understanding from some of the DEVs is that EA owns the rights to the name, as well as the code. The EMU has very limited rights to operate a not for profit version -- it serves as an outlet for those who would otherwise be poking EA every other day to bring the game back -- which EA isn't going to do because of the cost involved. You can't, legally speaking, organize a separate corporation or other entity to take over or promote EnB. That would be theft of intellectual property which is aggressively litigated worldwide [except in China and then only in favor of Chinese entities]. Like it or not, we have to work within the confines of the contract with EA. Unorganized fan action in unofficial forums and venues, is, legally, the responsibility of those fans -- but the EMU can not in any way approve of or contribute to such actions. That would be another contract violation.
  16. This was already in the game but never activated by EA. How would this make any difference seeing as EA own the game and they will be under the same constraints as Kyp. If you want the game to change as you say why don't you go and spend the 10 years reverse engineering the game and creating your own new pieces of software to program it. Then come back. Why should Kyp and his friends who did this for fun give it up to someone else? It is their game to run how they like, if you don't like it leave and create your own then you can run it however you like.

    Music and private collections of

    The version of the WW engine E&B uses supports .mp3, .wav, and .ogg audio, and the game's sound assets are pretty distributed between the various formats. The in-game music is broken up into a few mp3 files packed into the sound mixfiles ({RegionRace}Wander{ID0}-{ID1}, ex: TerranWander01-1.mp3 packed into mixfile_sound_09). It is possible to replace this music with your own mp3 files in the mixfiles, but you cannot add additional music that was not already there; you can only replace existing tracks with your own. To do so you will need a tool that can unpack and repack, or simply edit-in-place the appropriate sound mixfiles. I am hesitant to release my/our tools for this but you may find similar tools in the RenegadeTools pack or other W3D tool packs (although I can't endorse the safety of any of them). Note: This is completely unsupported by the emulator and the development team. If you break something it is up to you to fix it. (But if you send me a private message I'm more than happy to help you fix what you broke!) If you decide to attempt this, please be aware that if an update touches a mixfile that you have edited, you will have to re-apply the change you made to the newly-updated mixfile.

  18. Why I suggest creating new independant entity with people on the board Nothing against new company / fan base creating old tools Why i suggest ceating different entity We have 7 NEW sector ? plus the 3 hidden class and there newbie sector ... Why I suggest we need to split the need into other entity

  25. A problem is if net-7 had the financial resources to do things like buying game rights from EA, EA might think there's money still in the game and try to get the EMU shut down. That's a bit of a catch-22. Look what happened with Blizzard and WoW classic servers. And doing massive changes, while a nice idea, would be a bit against the preservationist goal of the Net-7 E&B Emulator. Net-7 board seems to have its hands tied in what they can do as far as marketing. What may really work is stealth marketing from the fans. Maybe something viral.

    2019 Active Guilds

    Damage Inc, is, of course, still active. You'll see us a lot in the end-game content areas. Anyone interested can give us a shout out in new players or general chat. You can actually see guild size, at least for 'public' guilds, on the net-7 web site's guild list. That can be a little deceptive, because above about 576 members the in-game guild status window stops showing online/offline status properly. DI's been forced to regularly pare down the list of inactive members to keep under that limit -- several of the really old guilds have not, and have their roster inflated by huge numbers of inactive players. -Zarg
  27. As far as i am aware Mouli they cannot do any of the things you suggested due to the fact EA still own the game and they are not allowed to make any money from running the game. The server maintenance is all they can get money for. They also cannot change much of the game, only what is already there again due to EA owning the game still. EA will also not sell the game to Kyp so they can make more radicul changes also the code for the game is very old and from what i gather hard to change due to EA not letting them. That is my understanding but i could be off on a few things.
